-- Software - Bias Peak / Ozone / Nomad Factory EQs / Audiofile Engineering Sample Manager
-- Crossfaded the tape stop/start interruptions present in between every song break.

Notes
-- The tape was stopped in between every song break.

-- Big thanks and good karma to Norm Bowen and Andy Foust for helping to secure Rion's master cassette, so this live music and its history could be shared.
-- More big thanks and more good karma to John Hance who fixed and re-shelled Rion's cassette in order to facilitate its audio sound preservation.

Subject: Dark Star
This DS has some of the "Feelin' Groovy" elements of 11-02. Not quite as developed as that night, however. Pretty interesting, nonetheless.

Just a clean recording made even better. The boys are laid back, TC was always a great addition. Listen to the Airplane snippet prior to Dark Star, never can get enough Pig neither, for perfectionist, humble yourselves and dismiss the cuts before the tunes, a lot of tapers waited till the song started to save tape. That pause button always has the feel of the AUD recordings!!
